Get Involved – Internships
The internship at Weathervane Farm is an opportunity to be part of the evolution of a dynamic farming business. You will learn primarily about CSA and market gardening. Throughout the whole process, from raising starts to the harvest and sale of our produce, interns are an integral part of the success of our farm.
The role of education is an important part of our vision at Weathervane Farm. With agriculture becoming less common as a career and lifestyle, we feel it is important to preserve the knowledge of past generations as well as to forge new and innovative solutions to sustain our communities. We offer opportunities to share our knowledge of food production through internship, volunteer, and educational programs. Getting our hands dirty in the garden empowers us to reconnect with the land. Cultivating the crops keeps our minds and bodies active. Taking part in the harvest helps us to recognize the seasonality of food. Our goal is that Weathervane Farm exemplifies the strength of diversity that is ever present in our lives and inspires new friendships, recipes, and endless reasons to enjoy the world around us.
In exchange for your commitment, Weathervane Farm can offer food from the farm, a room in the farmhouse, and a monthly stipend commensurate with experience and time contribution. Please send a cover letter and resume to Weathervane Farm, 29135 CR 331, Buena Vista, CO 81211.
